Funny how ur so proud of how your crap food has infiltrated nearly every product on grocery shelves.
I'm not proud of it. This method of feeding our population and the infrastructure/practices facilitating it were developed in the seventies, and both the producers and the consumers are seriously hooked. Some folks eat nothing but fast food and soda (both of which are mostly GMO corn.)

Like I said earlier, it makes me sick.

But I can tell you for sure, after listing to your thoughtless rants over the last two weeks, that your family is closer to the typical than mine is, and the people living near you consume much more of this crapfood than the people living near me.

Go ahead and by the pseudo-organic food from costco, but know that you are eating the same thing as the bulk of the country's population unless you grow your own food like I do.

you think i culd afford psuedo organic if i had a family?

i agree, people should grow their own food. I, also, think the government should set up a sort of agricultural corps, so all the people on welfare, etc., should be required to enter into it & grow their own food. Fact is seems government wants the popultaion hooked on getting fed from indutrial ag. Farmers are too self-reliant and they don't want that.
